'll tell us how the administration is about to go with a prominent republican. let's begin with brianna keilar live in washington. congress is back in session for the big midterm election push and they've got a very big issue on their hands in the matter of whether or not to extend these bush tax cuts. this is -- this is going to be an interesting one to watch in the next couple of days. >> and this is the big issue, jim. this is the issue that in really less than four weeks because they're out of there again. they're out of washington again ahead of the election season, this is what they're going to be dealing with. and obviously, the issue that continues to resinate is republican leader john boehner who had said that he would go along with extending the tax cuts for everyone except for the wealthiest earns, which, of course, is what president obama has gone for. but it's created a jumbled message among republicans. because look at what some other republicans are saying. you have mitch mcconnell who is saying, no, i'm pushing legislation to keep these tax cuts in place across the board
was showing us how he thinks, and letting people who aren't in his camp ask the questions and they were good ones. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. tomorrow night the one and only bill mohr here on "hardball." right now it's time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show." tonight, live from the nation's capital, washington, d.c. these stories hitting my hot buttons and on the table at this hour. well, here comes the tan man and his republican cronies, they're ready to roll out their new contract with america's billionaires. my commentary on that. >>> plus, reaction from majority leader in the house, steny hoyer. he's with me off of the top tonight in just a moment. >>> senate minority leader, mitch mcconnell, i think this guy ought to watch his back. i think he's about to get waterlooed by tea party king makemaker senator tim demint. >>> christine o'donnell admitted she dabbled in witchcraft and once had a picnic on a satanic altar soaked in blood? am i reading this correctly? what were they have done with barack obama if
will influence the tea party ties. joining us now with a preview from washington is our own kellie wright. good morning, kellie. >> good morning, gretchen. primary season, today is the day voters will continue to determine contending november 49 days away. let's continue with the drama unfolding in delaware where three weeks ago it looked like republican congressman and former governor mike castle would be the easy favorite to vie for the senate seat in november but now castle may find himself outdone by christine o'donnell backed by the tea party express which has a $220,000 out of state ad to help the unknown gain over popular castle. even palin recorded call and supported radio ads for o'donnell. >> there's a wave, a tidal wave coming to delaware. we're riding it, my opponent is drowning in it. >> the tea party influence is palpable in the state where joe biden served as senator for 36 years. the tea party labelled castle as a rhino. now a virtual tie. o'donnell is not without her own problems. she's undergone some personal financial issues. >> she has a lot of strikes against her, more than
the republican cannibalism i was ahead in the polls. and, you know, if we can put this behind us and do some damage repair and, you know, then we can turn the two-point lead to a 10-point lead. >> some republicans fear o'donnell will cost them the chance to win the seat joe biden held for 0 years as well -- 30 years as well as deny them a critical seat needed to win in the majority. >> it's clear that the tea party movement has the upper hand in the republican primary electorate. that is not the general election. >> meanwhile, in new jersey, establishment favorite won the g.o.p. nomination to face democratic congressman paul hodes in november. the win was so close against conservative glamante, it was not decided until this afternoon. >> despite all the tension between tea party conservatives and establishment republicans and whether it's a good thing or bad thing that tea party candidates keep winning there are two things that are benchmarks undeniable. since the primaries began more than 4 million republican ballots have been cast over democrats. and in delaware, where christine o'donnell
the last several decades. that's it's what has got us into this bankrupt position. >> and what does this say about international intervention? do you want to go down that road, mr. candidate, from alaska. some reason, democrats and focus on the money in just a moment. for some reason the democrats have allowed the conservatives to outmaneuver them when it comes to fiscal responsibility and that whole conversation. keep in mind, i'll say this every night before the rally and every night before the election, we got into this mess under their watch. we got under this mess and damn near went bankrupt because of the hundreds and billions of dollars that we spent on a war and nobody had any idea how we were going to pay for it. these masses tax cuts for the superrich in this country is what has got us where we are. and the congress rubber stamped every dime the former president demanded for the war in iraq, and voted over and over again for the bush tax cuts, and cut deals. i wonder how ben nelson feels about that $18 million he got for homeland security as the they bought his vote so he
. joining us now from the north lawn of the white house austin goolsby the president's adviser. the president was pretty critical of john boehner in his speech in cleveland. boehner sfas the president is serious about finally focusing on jobs a good start would be taking the advice of his recently departed budget director and freezing all tax rates coupled with cutting federal spending to where it was before all the bailouts, government takeovers, and stimulus spending sprees. he is referring to peter orszag the budget director during the obama administration who wrote a piece in the "new york times" this week for the next two years keep tax rates including for the wealthy exactly where they are right now. >> look, i think representative boehner is a little confused about what peter orszag was suggesting and threw in on that second bid let's go back to the final bush budget of 2008 as if that were the gold standard we wanted to return to when in fact that was the final culmination of exactly the policy that got us into this mess. >> to be precise peter orszag was not recommendi
. now, it's just not smart from an economic perspective for us to allow a whole bunch of those jobs that are right here in the united states to go away. >> reporter: boehner made headlines last month demanding the president fire his economic team. mr. obama returned fire in his home, calling out his name no fewer than times. >> there were no new policies for mr. boehner. >> we've offered him new ideas for the last 20 months. >> reporter: on sunday, boehner said he wants to see the bush era taxes for all income brackets, but would support an extension limited to the middle class if he has no other choice. >> i think that's bad policy. i don't think that's going to help our economy. >> reporter: still, the white house claimed the g.o.p. leader had changed his tune. >> i think that congressman boehner was fairly clear yesterday in outlining a position that the president outlined last week. >> reporter: on sunday, a new york times article portrayed boehner as indebted to lobbyists and 45 currently or recently departed house members raised more from lobbyists than boehner, among them
's senate g.o.p. primary. >> molly lyon live for us in boston with the roundup of all the results. good morning you to. >> good morning, steve, gretchen and brian. that's right, you know, total upset win in delaware, this is really a big story where the tea party favorite christine o'donnell managed to beat out mike castle. really a political legend in that state for the g.o.p. nomination for the senate seat. castle was a nine term congressman, is a nine term congressman and a former governor and won statewide election a dozen times. was backed by state g.o.p. leaders who aggressively slammed o'donnell throughout the course of this campaign referring to her as a liar and fraud. she proved him wrong, though, showing she could win this election. she won with 53% over castle's 47%. the national republican senatorial congratulated o'donnell. in a brief and underwhelming statement last night. she wouldn't be getting some national support because they don't think she'll be able to beat the democratic challenger in the fall. a very tight race, even right now as the votes are coming in between
,000 bail. we don't know if money was paid, who paid it. we think one of the gulf nations, oman. the u.s. government says it did not. and if it was paid if it was 500,000 or less. >> absolutely. we do have information from the swiss embassy who represents u.s. interests here that the om omani people were instrumental in securing her release. all indications are they did help with the bail. >> it's an amazing drama, and our focus does remain on josh and shane and the fact they are still in prison and, in fact, the prosecutor said today that they will have to stay in july for two more months. this is the first time we had an end date. it doesn't seem they will be released immediately. >> it's not such an ominous sign, because it's the first time they put a time frame on this, which could be a positive signal. >> thank you, ali arouzi, we'll have much more of your reporting on msnba and throughout the day and evening. now joining us is nicholas burns, former undersecretary of state who entered a lot of negotiations behind the scenes with the iranians over the years on issues as large as the
have been hit hardest by the recession and who need to create the jobs that will get us out of it foot the bill for the democrats' two-year advent neurexpanded government. >> iing not believe that when i heard it. he thinks that the wealthiest americans have paid the biggest price. well, just a minute. mcconnell couldn't have picked the worst week to profess his loyalty to the superrich in this country, because today the u.s. crennus bureau released a report showing 43.6 million americans now live in poverty in this country. my friends, that is 10 million more people than live in the entire state of california. it's more people that live in new york and texas combined. 4 million americans have fallen below the poverty level in the last year alone. now, mcconnell uses his time on the senate floor to protect, the tax cuts for the top 2% in this country. now, it seems to me he doesn't give a damb about the 14.3% of americans that have absolutely nothing. blocked unemployment benefit extensions this year. conservatives say hey these people were fat, lazy and sitting on the couch and didn't
right now is taking place far from home. fortunately for us, it could not be in better hands than those of hillary clinton and george mitchell. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being us. right now it's time for the "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans and welcome to the "the ed show." tonight live from the napgsz's capital, washington, d.c., these stories on the table and hit my hot buttons at this hour. republicans' senate minority leader mitch mcconwill. shamed of himself. in the same week that we find out that 43 million americans live in poverty he's got the nerve to say that the wealthy suffer the most during this recession. he's going to pay for that one with commentary coming up in reaction from the president of naacp in just a moment. >>> joe biden has a message for progressives, get it in gear. well, get it but people who he should be screaming at are the ones in his white house. my advice coming up in the battleground story tonight. >>> and leading republican propaganda sarah palin's taken psycho talker christine o'donnell under her wing. she's telli

lie to me. >> that's a hard thing to put together. we're used to dealing in objective facts. how do you get the facts from a guy, pastor jones who won't even say who this man is who he talked to? who is this man who may have tricked him? >> i take it was is the imam from central florida, muhammad musry he was meeting with. but i asked him, like who were you on the phone with? no names. look, doesn't it fit in many ways the way much of this has played out in terms of i had a very long interview with pastor jones and tried to get to some very specifics with him why he wanted to burn the koran. what specifically was in the koran that was most offensive to him. and he hadn't even read the koran. he basically admitted maybe he had looked at a page but primary what he said was there's no mention of jesus christ in the koran as the savior. anybody who understands religions understands that would not be in there in the same way it's not in the tora. i said are you going to start burning the tora, he said no. a lot of this has been very confusing in terms of why he said he was doing this and
us with what he said. the argument for voting on this. similar to today's vote in the senate, tax breaks on small businesses. senate democrats got two republicans to break their party's filibuster, to give small businesses $12 billion in tax breaks and create a $30 billion fund that will leverage as much as $300 billion in small business lending, which means senate democrats can argue republicans tried to block small business tax cuts in the middle of a recession. the argument against voting on the middle class tax cuts now. some democratic strategists are telling members of congress that even saying the word taxes helps republicans. that's it. but some republicans seem to understand the prospect of them blocking tax cuts for 98% of the country on behalf of the richest 2% a month before election day. i understand how that might not be a good thing. john boehner sunday said he would vote for the obama middle class tax cuts if those were the only tax cuts he could get. his counterpart in the senate tried to claim most americans agree with him, congress should extend tax cuts for eve
with us. "countdown with keith olbermann" starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? how snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. the republicans again hint at filibustering tax cuts for the middle class. >> we think most americans think it's a bad idea to be raising taxes on anybody in the middle of' recession. even the rich? you might be wrong about that. the house democratic caucus meets to decide whether to force the republicans to reveal their toad diing to the rich by forcing republicans to vote against the middle class tax cuts. our special guests caucus chairman chris van holland and the pollster who addressed the caucus stan greenberg. republican racism mae culpa. last year jim greer led the charge, calling the president's speech to school kids, quote, indoctrination. now an extraordinary admission. i found that many within the gop have racist views, and i apologize to the president for my opposition to his speech last year and my efforts to play indicate the extremists who dominate our party today. who writes economic policy for that party?
that is facing us today is as you look at a growing number of defections in the senate, up to five democratic senators saying they believe it should be extended for everybody. in my home state of florida the democratic nominee for governor is stay saying the tax cuts should be extended for everyone. the '01 and '03 tax cuts are the current tax code so if you don't extend them you are raising taxes. growing number of democrats looking not just for political survival but how to survive the age of obama and damage done to their party have come to that position in the last few days. >> neil: what do you think of mr. boehner's offer, though, when push comes to shove he would extend the middle class tax cuts even if it meant not extending them for the wealthy, that something is better than nothing? >> i think he was answering a hypothetical question that was posed and that is the danger with answering hypotheticals. i'm running on the u.s. is senate. leader mcconnell offered a bill to extend it. all the republicans in the senate and now five democrats and perhaps growing are saying they would vote
